Carly Fiorina says she WOULD shut the government down over THIS

During his sit-down with Carly Fiorina earlier this week, Glenn brought up a question many had been asking, about Fiorina's comment saying she felt bad for Boehner during the government shutdown over Obamacare.

Fiorina told Glenn she stands by that statement because those circumstances were different than they are now.

"We did not have a majority," Fiorina said. "The second thing that was different is Obamacare is President Obama’s signature piece of legislation. There is no way. On the other hand, think about where we are now. Planned Parenthood is $600 million. It is an abomination what is going on in Planned Parenthood, and they cannot and will not deny this."

When Glenn asked if she'd shut down the government over this, Fiorina responded emphatically, "yes."

"I would, and I would force President Obama to explain why he is willing over $600 million to permit taxpayer funding of the butchery of babies. When times and circumstances change, tactics can change," she said.

GLENN: When Ted Cruz—a lot of people have pointed this out. When Ted Cruz, who didn’t shut the government down, when that happened, you said:

"Everyone could see this train wreck coming. I actually feel bad for John Boehner, and I think Ted Cruz and President Obama’s shutdown, I think Ted Cruz’s tactics were wrong. There’s no honor charging a hill that you know you can’t take, only casualties. Although Ted Cruz may have gotten name recognition and money along the way, President Obama wanted the shutdown, and Ted Cruz played right into his hands."

You felt bad for John Boehner.

CARLY: Well, I stand by that statement, and you know why? By the way, we all want to repeal ObamaCare, but here’s what was different then. We didn’t have a majority. We did not have a majority. The second thing that was different is ObamaCare is President Obama’s signature piece of legislation. There is no way.

On the other hand, think about where we are now. Planned Parenthood is $600 million. It is an abomination what is going on in Planned Parenthood, and they cannot and will not deny this.

GLENN: You’d shut the government down over that?

CARLY: Yes, I would, and I would force President Obama to explain why he is willing over $600 million to permit taxpayer funding of the butchery of babies. When times and circumstances change, tactics can change.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
